Powers and Abilities
The Enforcer's armor is made of lightweight steel-hard fiber plastic body-armour. It is extremely durable to damage and can withstand a large impact with minimal damage. However the armor's durable nature was not meant to take repeated blows in focused spots and it could eventually be pierced.
The body-armour also had built in batteries on the belt. It would continually recharge itself via its miniature nuclear power components.
The body-armour also gives its wearer superhuman strength although to what degree was never tested or recorded. It is equipped with boot jets that enable the enforcer to fly for short distances.
Weapons and Paraphernalia
The Enforcer also wielded a pistol which fired short bursts of energy as blasts. It had a metal power cord running from the right side of the belt. This allowed the pistol to utilize the batteries on the belt as it would continually recharge itself via its miniature nuclear power components.
